Welcome to the homely "Boston Beds", in the heart of Bellville, close to the N1, 5 hospitals, various golf courses, Cape Town centre (15 kms), Stellenbosch, famous winelands & spectacular drives; close to multiple shopping and entertainment centres. Enjoy a safe, comfortable base. Your hosts ready with advice on trips, events, and aspects of history/culture. Be at home in this unpretentious but well-equipped and comfortable guest suite. Afrikaans/Dutch, German, English, some French. Welcome!
This guest apartment is ideal for 2-4 friends travelling together, or a family of 3 or 4, for a stay of one or two weeks (or longer). Of course, for a professional person or couple, needing working space, this is a very good proposition as well, and quite affordable for all it offers. We only rent the whole guest suite for one group, not to separate individuals.
There is a deck with nice views for very special sundowners, occasionally. Ask about this.
Christo and Jean, your hosts, are quiet people doing their own thing, but we are available for questions and reasonable requests. We wish our guests to enjoy their stay and to come back again.
Wifi is available in all the rooms, for normal use (internet searches, e-mail and legal smaller downloads). Ask about closeby amenities (there will be a list), safety and security issues, barbeque and other facilities.
- Enjoy the outside spaces or patios while considering neighbours, then all will be well. You have a separate TV/working/games/reading room for evening socialisation.
- No smoking inside please.
- Strictly no more than four people.
- Keep noise levels down - better for all!
